other way. we're joined by delaware attorney general beau biden, iraq war veteran, and the son of vice president joe biden. may i begin by thanking you for your military service and your continuing public service as attorney general, mr. biden. >> thank you, martin. thanks for alog he me to come on. >> thank you. mitt romney said he would not be getting political given today's anniversary, yet a couple lines into his speech he delivers overtly political comments about leadership, about his opponent, about the direction of returning military. is this man not in control of his own faculties? >> well, i don't know. i'll let the viewers be the judge of that. i know his speech wasn't consistent with what his staff said he was going to talk about, and that is not taking on the president and making this a political day. i'm going to follow the president's lead, the vice president's lead and honor those we lost on 9/11 11 years ago. everyone watching now, you i am sure, people on your staff, i know people, sons, a mother and a father who lost a son, a daughter who lost a father here in delawar
by president bush in iraq and then afghanistan and that's part of what president obama has actually been trying to, you know, in addition to getting us out of the wars, undo some of that damage. that's not a conversation they want to have. i find it talk about the sabre rattling, noecons going into iran, if we did that, it would be a similar situation, american forces on the ground, american resources not spent at home. it could be morsi we have seen on television now or as we saw with american loss of life coming home. there's a responsible element to this as well. >> you say that. julian, all i hear from people like paul ryan and the other expert on foreign policy, sarah palin, is that this president's affect has been one of weakness, and yet we've seen multiple dictators fall, and certainly american relationships with other nations improve. i don't understand what they want him to do. invade? what do they want him to do? >> that's the curious question. i agree with karen's point, these things are very harmful to the national interest, particularly when attached. to your question, martin, cha
of rights -- i'm sorry, the job quote for veterans returning from afghanistan and iraq. these people seem to have no sensitivity to the people who get up every morning, work hard. the people who go out and secure us, our policemen, our firefighters, the people who go off to war to keep us safe and secure in this country. their sensitivity seemed not to be there for these kind of people. >> but, congressman, mr. romney's position on virtually everything is to do nothing. on foreclosures, leave the housing market to collapse. auto industry, let it go bankrupt. why on earth do you think he wants to become president? >> that's the thing that is sort of puzzling to me, except that maybe he's just interested in being a resume-builder. he would love to be president of the united states. he doesn't want to really give service to the country. he doesn't want to give a contribution to the country. he doesn't want to protect the people. he wants the title, to be president. and that goes down as a part of who and what his resume was all about when he passed this way, as they say, in my church. the fa
iraq all over again. he thinks we should put troops back in there, and that secret video he lamented the fact that we don't still have 20,000 troops in iraq. i mean, look, i think one thing this president -- the american people can be confident of is this president understands how to deal with foreign policy and how to keep america safe. he's taken terrorists off the battlefield, including osama bin laden. he's ended the war in iraq and strengthened our relationships around the world. mitt romney would go back to the cowboy diplomacy that got us into many of the problems the president faced when he came into offense. >> i want to play you poart of mr. romney's speech. take a listen. >> egypt now with the muslim brotherhood president, pakistan high highly tu mu tu with us. >> pakistan, highly tumultuous. >> sounds like he didn't get far into his briefing on pakistan. i mean, of course, pakistan, afghanistan, that area of the world, you know, is an area that the president has focused on. he's taken a number of terrorists off the battlefield. >> tumultuous? it's going to be tumultuous t
bush, in these weeks and months when she was planning action against iraq, he was also talking about how great a religion islam is. he was talking about how we as americans look after muslim ameri americans, we protect them from hatred and tell them vile things about. -- -- also respect islam as an apologize. that's what the -- after 911. you. >> this is best evidence for why the blustering comments of a desperate politician are actually not in the best interests of this nation when it comes to matters overseas. >> that's obviously true. as richard said, george w. bush understood and mitt romney makes george w. bush look like some sort of giant of states manship and blodiplomacy, which is not easy thing to do. the administration response should have been some sort of blustery defense of this vile video produced specifically to inflame the sentiments of the muslim world. and just imagine what would have happened had that been an initial reaction by the u.s. administration saying, yeah, boy, we think this is great. you wouldn't see what you're seeing today, you would see something much
brought osama bin laden to justice, who ended the war in iraq. >> that was the change we fought for. s that 'twas change president obama deliver. >> president obama saved the auto industry and saved a million jobs. >> i for one will not stand by and let him be bullied out of office and neither should you. >> now, steve, if i didn't know bert, i would say that the democrats are usually the ones who are all over the place and at the moment, they are showing far greater discipline, far greater unity, i mean, that's not how it is supposed to be, is it? >> sure. well, they have been under relentless attack by the republicans since barack obama became president and managed to enact some serious landmark achieves in 2009 and 2010. you know, whatever you think of it, that was most productive congress since the great society days. and now they are motivated to defend it and if you look at the flip side of the republican party, base of that party, people who were in that last week and more broadly speaking republican voters are not wild about mitt romney personally or ideologically. two, basical
and you can invade iraq and we see years later what the consequences of that were. so short of that, he does not -- of starting a new war, he doesn't really have another policy option. >> excellent. professor dyson, romney has claimed that the president belittled the deaths of ambassador stevens and three other americans when he spoke of the middle east experiencing bumps in the road. that's obviously a desperate attempt to undermine the president on foreign policy. and yet at the same time, sir, mr. romney thinks nothing of belittling 47% of the american population. >> absolutely right. the reality is this, is that mitt romney is attempting to exploit the statements by president obama, take them out of context, and use them as a pretext to justify his assault upon the foreign policy of the obama administration and yet we know what he really thinks. again, we've seen behind the curtain. we see that the wizard of oz is a small guy. we see os not the big, bad wolf that he claims to be in his hawkish policies. here is a guy who dismiss the with elite condescension with the vast majority of
makes a note of taking about the fact he's ended the war in iraq, drawn down the troops in afghanistan, and, of course, you know the republicans have hit president obama on foreign policy. it is likely he will answer some of those charges tonight. that's one of the things we're going to be looking very closely at. president obama has been working on this speech for weeks. one of his top aides tell me it is in very good shape. he has spent the day putting the finishing touches on this speech, martin, and he's also managed to spend some time with his family. of course, they will all be there. >> if the people are a little more courteous instead of bumping into your shoulders. >> reporter: that's part of it. >> mitt romney's speech had a complete lack of specifics. do you think we'll xwet something more akin to a state of the union address tonight. >> reporter: i don't know if they'll compare it to a state of the union address, but they do say there will be more specifics in this speech than what you heard last week. campaign aides have told me the president is going to talk about the cho

than those weapons of mass destruction that he once said were hidden in iraq. what comes next? traveling on separate planes to campaign events where enthusiasm is low and tension is high, the false smiles and pretense of a love affair that only survives when the cameras are on them? and then some final bickering and a bitter divorce. romney and ryan a marriage of convenience, if ever there was one. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews is next. >>> breaking away. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. leading off tonight, i want you to watch and listen to the next few minutes here.
enough. after the bin laden raid and a the other attacks on al qaeda, libya, and what bush did in iraq and not really prosecuting the war afghanistan with any atiohele have turned, and you can't just have this reflective democrats are weak attack anymore. the public is not buying it. and yet romney still is sort of acting like it's 1979 and he can just come up with these catch phrases. i don't want to apologize for i don't think it gets him too far down the road with independents, with anybody who reads or thinks for more than a few moments but he's stuck, he's in this groove he' been in for a year and a half now and he can't get out of it even though i agree with you, the speech anotth h said up to date. >> dana, this line of the president's apologiesed even though there's no evidence -- >> the original definition is to explain, doesn't mean to express contrition i think he's just saying i not going to explain. >> dana mill bank, professor michael eric dyson, and david corn, ank you all. >>> a big apple good-bye and a big hello to ohio, but is that battleground already sunk for the r
